Mayo boss Peter Leahy has made two changes in personnel as last year’s beaten TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship semi-finalists aim for a spot in the last four of the 2020 competition.

Mayo put 4-17 past Tyrone last weekend, on a day when Sarah Rowe contributed 2-9, and the green and red now face Armagh in a straight shoot-out at Parnell Park on Saturday for a place in the last four.

Armagh were equally impressive in the scoring stakes in their victory over Tyrone, with Aoife McCoy contributing a hat-trick of goals as the Orchard County racked up 6-16 in Round 1.

The scene is now set for a thrilling live TV encounter between Armagh and Mayo, with the TG4 cameras present for live coverage of this crunch Group 4 tie on Saturday (3.15).

Leahy has drafted in Danielle Caldwell for a start in defence, with Saoirse Lally making way, while Deirdre Doherty is preferred to Tamara O’Connor in attack.

Armagh have named an unchanged team for a repeat of the 2019 quarter-final between the counties – which Mayo won by three points – and the winners of this one will face Dublin on November 28 in the semi-finals.

Mayo: L Brennan; D Caldwell, R Durkin, Ciara McManamon; É Ronayne, D Finn, E Brennan; A Gilroy, Clodagh McManamon; G Kelly, S Cafferky (capt.), S Rowe; M Reilly, R Kearns, D Doherty.

Armagh: A Carr; S Marley, C McCambridge, C McKenna; T Grimes, B Mackin, G Ferguson; N Coleman, A Bellew; C Marley, A McCoy, A Mackin; C O’Hanlon, K Mallon (capt.), E Lavery.
